Nikki and Makosi are in the Bathroom. Nikki tells Makosi that she is not going to sit at the desk all day because she has too much stuff that she needs to do like pack.

Some of the housemates are in the Kitchen. “I’m starting today with a clean slate”, Ulrika tells Chantelle and Brian. Brian tells Ulrika that he thinks Nadia is good at doing that. Chantelle remarks that it isn’t a big deal as it is always easier to start a clean slate when you are not the person on the receiving end. Brian tells them that he thinks Nadia is tense about being up for eviction adding that he thinks he would be too as he has never been nominated before. Ulrika tells him that she is always up for nomination and Brian tells her that the public’s reaction can be different to the people in the house. He then jokes about winning and realising that he was “adored” and was “the nation’s sweetheart” when he won. He tells Chantelle and Ulrika that he is pretty unaffected by it and then shouts jokingly about not getting a cup of tea.


Some of the housemates are in the Kitchen. Nikki sees Nick and Victor getting ready to fry bacon. “Oh no”, she says asking him he will grill the bacon so the smells doesn’t get on her hair and clothes. Victor tells Nikki to go to a different part of the house telling Nikki he will have his breakfast the way he likes it.

Makosi and Michelle are in the closet. Michelle asks Makosi about her hair weaves saying she can’t believe a man comes all the way from Nigeria to do her hair.

Nadia, Makosi and Michelle are in the Garden talking about Preston. “There’s nothing to him but I think he’s a fine boy”, says Makosi adding that she thinks he’s gorgeous.

Victor, Nick and Ulrika are in the Bathroom talking about Nadia. “It’s just a weird mix of people”, says Victor. He tells Ulrika that she is not weird. “Oh, you’ve made me feel so much better”, says Ulrika. Victor tells Ulrika she shouldn’t have even engaged in the argument with Nadia. Ulrika tells Victor that she has worked out Nadia shouts like a “banshee” to intimidate.

Ulrika tells Michelle that she will sound amazing with the choir. Michelle tells Ulrika that she doesn’t sound amazing that is the problem.
